to see you. also steve liesman is here with us on set this morning, but, j.j., why don't we start things off with you and talk a little bit about what's happening, what you see with some of this movements in and out of the headlines around the fiscal cliff. it's not adding up to a lot of volatility even though we've seen swings with the major averages. >> it's almost to the point maybe we should get the nhl guys and the government in at the same time and solve both on the same day. but, you know, really, beck, it's kind of interesting right now, you look at the s&ps, they're not moving much. there are things to trade. gold is down almost 10%. and you touched on the stocks which i think gave the market quite a bit of hope in toll brothers. you talked about the backlog orders and orders coming up. the amazing part is the orders are up 70% going forward. so, we are seeing a lot of positive signs in the economy. it's almost like, you know, talking to so many of the other traders, everyone is saying i wish the government would get out of the way almost and get this thing solved and get on the
president. and richard, one of the questions i want to ask, i was talking to steve liesman about this yesterday, do you think that your board and your chairman is now effectively overcommunicating to the market to the point where we don't really -- we actually understand less rather than more about what's going on? >> well, the verbiage that we put out after every meeting has expanded significantly. the theory is that we want to signal to markets in a sufficient matter so that we don't surprise them. and very importantly, they can anticipate in a way with, again, greater certainty. the path we're likely to follow. the most important thing, of course, to communicate, will happen after we begin to tighten. we'll call that post-liftoff. >> but in the same way -- >> but you're right, andrew, from the standpoint that there's a lot of verbiage hire. and i don't know if it's actually -- we'll have to just watch this. i don't know if it's creating more confusion or not. i'm of the old volcker school. i would be communicating as little as possible. but there is a demand for greater transp
for the economy in the new year. here is steve liesman with a preview of what he expects in 2013. >> trying to figure out what's going to happen in 2013 depends on one very important development. whether the u.s. goes over the fiscal cliff in a few days' time. and, for how long. if it's avoided, there's considerable upside for the economy. we could see at least one, and maybe two quarters of growth above 3%. the kind of growth that would put people back to work and lower the unemployment rate. why? because business has been holding back investment under the uncertainty, unleashing business spending would add to the growth from the rebound in housing and from the consumer who has hung in there despite tough times. in fact, we could see unemployment drop below 7%. although it might first rise, and people come into the workforce will be discouraged but then it could start to fall. as for the fed i think the market may be overstating its expectation for asset purchases from the central bank in 2013. at the current pace the new round of quantitative easing will add $1 trillion to the balance she
. and then, you know, i don't think we've run this bite enough. >> tim geithner told steve liesman. >> i have it ready. >> that he is we should show it multiple times. >> tt is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff? >> oh, absolutely. there's no prospect to an agreement that doesn't involve those rates going up on the top 2% of the wealthiest -- remember, it's only 2%. and all of those americans get a tax cut on the framework of the first $250,000 of their income. >> yeah, yeah, you still get the 250, andrew. they love that. what does oh, absolutely mean, bob? >> maybe it means his favorite movie was "rebel without a cause." >> go the. >> i guess it's letting the other side know you're willing to go eyeball to eyeball with something that is terrible. >> i see both sides pretending to say, yeah, we're doing all we can, but it's almost just like this -- like boehner just said, hey, you guys, you happen, in the democratic-controlled senate, you put a bill together. i'd love to consider it. he can't get his guys to consider a democratic bill. >> as long as they feel like they ca
a moment. we also have pimco's mow hammel el-erian. >>> steve sedgwick is standing by in london right now. how are things standing by there? >> it's a very quiet session as we saw last week on the u.s. and the european incidentsies. despite the fact that the vix in the united states and the v-stocks and the various volatility measures on this side of the atlantic remain elevated. despite that, we're not seeing a lot of oscillation on the back of, as you said, the fiscal cliff and concerns that we may fall off. does that mean that people are getting complacent? they think even though we might not get a deal in the next 24 hours, we will get a deal fairly imminently. in the meantime, though, this is what we've got in terms of the major european indices. that will open and the germans will come to that in a few minutes' time it has been up year-to-date around about 6% and that makes the ftse 100 a real lagger compared with some of its european peers. a laggard, as well, compared to the cac 40. we have no fiscal cliff deal as of yet and it is up 1%. that means the cac 40, the french equity ma
